I drove a 7 hour round trip, to see a doctor that saw me for literally 3 minutes. I was dealing with a kidney stone issue, referred by another urologist in a smaller town that thought I could benefit from speaking to someone with more knowledge about laser removal of a kidney stone of this size and in a high position. Unfortunately wasn't given the time of day and noticed this dr. doesn't seem to have a want to help people. Unfortuately he struck me as the type done and tired of his profession.

Don't ever, EVER go to this doctor who is a butcher. My husband had a horrendous vasectomy experience with him. Dr. Mikkelsen started the procedure without letting my husband become numb from the lidocaine. My husband told him that he felt everything, but Dr. M gave more lidocaine and went back to work without waiting. My husband took weeks to recover. Additionally, the office wouldn't give him a consultation before checking our insurance first. Money matters more than patients at this office.

I would highly recommend to any man needing help with prostate issues. He definitely knows his stuff and is an excellent surgeon. He did a TURP on my 67 year old husband who had been unable to urinate on his own for 2 months because of a huge prostate. We had been putting off this surgery because of possible side effects of incontinence and impotence but my husband's surgery was successful with no side effects at all and he is doing extremely well 1 1/2 years later. .

I was referred to Dr. Mikkelsen after I had two bad PSA tests. I liked the doctor the first time I met him. He told me exactly what we were going to do and what tests that I needed. I had the tests ran and a biopsy ran and it confirmed that I did indeed have prostate cancer.

The treatment of the entire staff and Dr. Mikkelsen himself was horrible. After being referred for an emergency case from the ER it took almost a week and a lot of arguing and begging to even be given an appointment. Then at the actual appointment the staff treated me horribly and the Dr. spent 30 seconds with me. The problem was not even addressed, diagnosed or treated. This visit was the definition of mistreatment.
